Propulsion System

The 11/32 cassette is operated by the Hands-On Rapid Fire unit which is mounted on the right (standard) handpedal. It operates both the 11/32 cassette and the hands-on brake. The manual derailleur operates the top chain-rings utilizing a manual system which eliminates cables and their maintenance. A parking brake/second brake is mounted on the left side of the frame.

Crankset

The width is measured horizontally centre to centre to the point at the middle of the handpedal. Length of the crankset depends on the length of the arms. The length is measured perpendicular from the centre of the crank to the centre of the handpedal spindle. Most people choose 190mm long and 20" wide.
